TRURO – No matter how Interstate 35’s football season ended, it was going to be one that set a new bar for the Roadrunner program as a whole.
I-35’s second round contest against Dike-New Hartford was always going to be an uphill battle and the Wolverines proved as such with a 37-0 win to advance to the UNI-Dome.
The Roadrunners finish the year 10-1 after picking up the first home playoff win in school history and the first 10-win season in Interstate history, dating back to the early 1960s.
“At the end of the day there is going to be one team left standing and it’s a lot like life. They did things that can’t be questioned,” said I-35 head coach Mike Stuart. “It’s not the ending we were looking for. ... Couldn’t be more proud of the group we have.”
Interstate 35 managed to keep Dike-New Hartford at bay in the first half outside of an early touchdown, managing just a two-score deficit by half.
The Roadrunners were without leading rusher Mason Cassady who was dealing with a high ankle sprain, according to Stuart.
